It just depends

AnswerI live in Arkansas and I just moved from Kansas, from living there all my life. In both of these states, I have talked to medicaid workers and they have all told me MEDICAID DOES PAY if the women has given birth 2 times or has been pregnant for a total of 3 times. In most cases, it is PAID for as a method of BIRTH CONTROL just because there are so many young women who get pregnant and 25% of them end in abortion, adoption or children that suffer.

Yes, medicaid paid for my tubal ligation.They paid for mine as well, what I didnt find out until years later is they also pay for the husband of the woman on medicaide to have a vasectomy, this has less complications in the long run since most women report having an increase in severity of menstrual cramps. (Something I didnt know before my TL) -sattoritx

A tubal ligation is a highly effective method of preventing pregnancy. Birth control pills prevent, but don't help, a woman to get pregnant. Combining tubal ligation and birth control pills is not an effective way to get pregnant.

No.You have to get the tubal reversed first. Unless you do that anything else won't matter.

I am 31 years old and a mother of four. I had a c-section and a tubal ligation after I had my 4th daughter. I feel very bloated on my stomach and look six months pregnant. I feel this has got to do with the tubal ligation that I've had. Anyone who can help me out or who has the same symptoms?

there isn't a way to help yourself get pregnant unless u get the tubal ligation reversed

No, you can't help your tubes grow back together after a tubal ligation. You need to have tubal reversal surgery. This can cost anywhere from $4500 to over ten thousand dollars. I had reversal surgery and it was a breeze. Not only are my tubes open now, I feel so much better than I did when I had the ligation. There are some freak incidences where tubes have grown back together, but it isn't common.

Yes you can have a positive test after a tubal. I also had a tubal in 2000. Took a home pregnancy test, 3 of them. All came back positive. This was just 5 weeks ago.

User Avatar

yes sweetie! A Bilateral Tubal Ligation can be reversed. There are several medical offices that can help. It is best if you obtain the operative note report from the DR./Surgeon that performed your BTL. Try google.com and type in Tubal reversal. or search Pregnant again. I know of a Dr. near Atlanta GA that can perform it and its not as bad as what most would say and a plus it costs only about $6500-$7000 to do it. Want more information email me at KymRozell23@aol.com. Good Luck!

To become pregnant after a tubal ligation you can visit a Dr for tubal reversal surgery or for in vitro fertilization. Both are very expensive and are usually not covered by insurance in the USA as they both are elective/infertility treatments.

I would begin by talking to your doctors and see if they can do anything to help you. They would be the first step into finding medicaid.

Iwant a aother child. When I was 17 I had my tubes clapped I just want one to be reversed. And how much would that cost me.And were r u at in Louisville. Thank you, Hopefully you can help me

There is no medication that will cause the fallopian tubes to rejoin themselves after cut during tubal ligation or salpingectomy. Surgical treatment may do so, however.

User Avatar

Tubal ligation is a surgery performed to prevent any future pregnancies. The pain that you are feeling from the gas is the carbon dioxide that is used for the surgeon to visualize the tubes. To ease the pain caused by the gas rest, drink plenty of fluids, and take the pain medication as prescribed.

== == ;: hi, i just curious,I'm 25 yrs old and 3 children. i missed period this month and i had a tubal ligation filshie clips. do you think i might be pregnant? sometimes i got sore my nipple but not all the time. help me, thanks for ur share.Yes it is possible to fall pregnant after a tubal ligation. If you do happen to fall pregnant naturally, the chance of a eptopic pregnancy (in the fallopian tube) is very high. falling pregnant naturally is very slim only happening to 1% of tubal ligations. however, if you want to fall pregnant on purpose, getting a reversal is the best opiton, women have fallen pregnant getting reversals as many as 8 years after the initial tubal ligation (of course its not to say it cant happen with later operations)but intially the sooner the better for success. goodluckYes. A tubal ligation is approximately 99% effective during the first year after it is done.After that its effectiveness may be reduced slightly with the onset of time assince the fallopian tubes can, in some cases, reform or reconnect and this can lead to unwanted pregnancy. Method failure is difficult to detect, except by subsequent pregnancy, If pregnancy does occur it carries a 33% chance of being an ectopic pregnancy.

Since medicaid is a state run program, with some help from Washington, I would start with the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Getting Pregnant After 10 YearsIt's unlikely. A recent study (the Collaborative Review of Sterilization, or CREST, study) looked at 10,000 women who had undergone tubal ligation and found 143 failures (a failure rate of 1.4 percent). It can be higher when a tubal is done at the time of a C-section. The failure rate also tends to increase the longer it has been since one had a tubal ligation. The U.S. Collaborative Review of Sterilization (CREST) found the failure rate for tubal ligation (all occlusion methods) to be 1.85% after 10 years.Here's other comments from WikiAnswers contributors:Yes, it is very possible 1 in every 200 TL fail (This statistic has no documented source and should not be trusted.It is very possible. In fact, my friend last week found out she was pregnant after having a tubal ligation 11 years ago. The only thing was that it turned out to be a tubal pregnancy. The fetus was attached to the outside of her tube on her right side so she had to have her tube removed. The MD told her that her tubal failed and now she has to take some sort of birth control if she doesn't want to get pregnant. I strongly recommend to anyone who has had this procedure done and has any doubt if they are pregnant to go see their MD or get some medical advice as soon as possible. My friends tubal pregnancy ruptured and she had fever and heavy bleeding right away. This could be fatal, especially if you wait too long.My mom had her tubes tied (I guess that's the same as a tubal ligation). You can get pregnant from it, but most likely it's ectopic (tubal). Go to the doctor immediately. If you are having severe pain, bleeding, etc, go now. It will help you out ALOT. Take a pregnancy test first.Yes, it is possible. I had my tubal ligation in 1991 and became pregnant again in 2002.It is definitely possible. Actually, after 10 years, the failure rate for a tubal ligation increases slightly. My tubal ligation failed after only 4 years. I had my tubal ligation in June of 2000 and had another baby boy in October of 2004. Approximately 1/3 of all pregnancies that occur after a tubal ligation is an ectopic pregnancy though so it's important to see your doctor immediately if you think you're pregnant.I had my tubes tied and cauterized in Dec 2000, after 2nd C-section, I became pregnant in Dec 2004..4 years later. I found out baby made it to utero, but we miscarried shortly after. It was devastating for me, I really wanted another baby. I had a hsg test, tubal dye, and they found my right tube slightly open, but the left is still closed. Now I am depressed every month I get another period, hoping for another baby. I also decided to see if I can have it opened properly giving me every opportunity to have another child. In our province we have to pay for a reversal, so I am hoping they don't expect me to pay for this screw-up...I never asked for any of this, but now that it has happened it's ruining my life...I can't believe something that is "permanent" ... isn't.It's a rare occurrence to become pregnant after having a sterilization or tubal but it is possible. Not all sterilizations procedures are 100% effective and some have a 1-2% failure rate. Because of this it is possible to become pregnant but the chance is very very low.Yes - you can become pregnant. Nature always tries to overcome an obstacle to achieve its only aim - reproduction.After a tubal ligation, it has been found that some women "grow" another fallopian tube in which the egg can enter by.If you wish to get pregnant, then you should consult a doctor to see what the "state" of your tubes are. There are various ways of doing a tubal ligation - some that can be reversed easily. Even if you are found to not have viable fallopian tubes, you can still use IVF to conceive. You will still have your eggs and it is a matter of "harvesting" the eggs, fertilizing them outside the body and then implanting them.

Well, scar tissue will help with preventing the women from getting pregnant. The idea is to block sperms from reaching the eggs. Anyway, any disruptions to the natural anatomy can produce scarring.

Yes, up to the amount Medicaid would have paid if the patient had no other coverage.

Medicaid is to help those people who are not offered health insurance thru their employer or cannot afford it.

User Avatar

Yes, for persons who would have to enter a nursing home unless they can get help with housekeeping and similar chores.

User Avatar

you can apply for Medicaid insurance with the government

User Avatar

Yes, with a "but... ." Medicaid and Medicare will help with the cost of the wquipment, but they will not pay out any monies toward the installation of the stair chair lift.

Wow, it's like saying you're on the pill (without physically taking the pill) and having less than 100% effectiveness. If you don't want to get pregnant again, then I would use a backup plan until it gets fixed. You might want to go revisit the doctor who did the original tubal ligation on you and see what they can do for you. Going to a totally new doctor will totally add on some new expenses. If your original doctor doesn't do anything to help or if their clinic/hospital is uncooperative, you are entitled to file a medical malpractice law suit. Filing for malpractice does not mean that an injury was caused, but that the physician did not meet the expected standards of care.

If you need help paying for dental care, apply for Medicaid at the welfare office in your county. You'll need to provide proof of income for everyone that lives in your house. If you qualify for Medicaid due to pregnancy or disability, you'll need to provide documentation from your physician.
